  • Jasper Rees of the Times Online has published a new interview with Damian Lewis, Keira Knightley, Tara Fitzgerald, and director Thea Sharrock for The Misanthrope. Damian’s comments about returning to the stage include:

    I think it makes you a much better actor when you come back. It makes you more detailed and less generally wanting to present yourself out front… In film, you don’t have to think about anybody. You learn your lines, you come up with your idea for your part on your own; you might get a day’s rehearsal, you might get one minute’s rehearsal. On stage, the wonderful paradox is, it’s massively empowering while at the same time utterly exposing. You never have that fear on camera. You can do it again.
